SAN DIEGO (AP) -Houston Astros ace Roy Oswalt left Saturday night's start against San Diego after 4 2-3 innings with a strained left oblique. He was listed as day-to-day.
Oswalt was visited on the mound by manager Phil Garner and a team trainer in the fourth inning following a pitch to Mike Cameron. Oswalt remained in the game but was pulled after allowing consecutive RBI singles by Brian Giles and Geoff Blum in the fifth that made it 3-2.
Oswalt came in with a 13-6 record and a five-game winning streak.
